Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Slightly less than 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Line 8-inch square pan with cooking parchment paper, leaving a few inches of overhang on 2 sides.
  • 2
    Place 2 cups of the oats in large bowl. Add remaining 1/2 cup oats to blender or food processor; pulse into a rough flour. Add oat flour to bowl of oats. Add baking soda and salt to bowl of oats; stir.
  • 3
    In microwavable bowl, microwave coconut oil uncovered on High just until melted. Stir in honey, sugar and vanilla; add to bowl of oats. Stir well to coat oats completely. Spread mixture evenly in pan; press down firmly and evenly.
  • 4
    Bake 20 minutes. Oats should be golden and smell of honey. Cool on rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan using parchment overhangs. Cut into 8 rectangles while still warm. Cool completely before wrapping. The bars will firm and crisp up as they cool.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use a measuring cup or sturdy glass to aid in pressing down oats before baking. This will help ensure bars hold their shape after cutting.
  • tip 2
    This recipe calls for coconut oil, but you can sub canola oil if you prefer (the texture may be slightly different).
  • tip 3
    Make these bars extra sweet and add some coconut flakes or mini chocolate chips.
